Types of Injuries We Heal

  • Whiplash: A common injury resulting from car accidents, whiplash occurs when the neck is abruptly jerked forward and backward, causing strain on the muscles and ligaments.
  • Concussion: Head injuries can lead to concussions, which can cause a range of symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and cognitive difficulties.
  • Sprains: Sprains occur when ligaments are stretched or torn, commonly affecting joints such as the ankles, wrists, or knees.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: These injuries involve damage to the muscles, tendons, or ligaments, leading to pain, swelling, and limited mobility.
  • Nerve Entrapments: Nerves can become compressed or trapped, causing pain, tingling, or numbness in affected areas.

The Importance of Chiropractic for Personal Injuries

Seeking chiropractic care for personal injuries is crucial for several reasons. Untreated injuries can lead to chronic inflammation and the development of scar tissue on important muscles. Our chiropractic treatments can help gently break up scar tissue, reduce swelling and inflammation, alleviate discomfort, and improve mobility.

Working with Insurance Companies

We understand the complexities of personal injury cases and work with insurance companies to ensure seamless billing. Patients involved in personal injury cases should bring their insurance information, a copy of the police report (if available), a valid ID, and any other relevant information related to the accident or incident.

Appointment Duration and Imaging

The initial appointment duration may vary depending on the extent of the injury. We typically recommend allowing ample time for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment discussion.

Our clinic offers X-rays as part of the diagnostic process, allowing us to assess the injury accurately and develop an effective treatment plan. In some cases, we may refer patients for additional imaging, such as an MRI, to gather more detailed information about their condition.

Recovery Time and Additional Treatments

The duration of recovery varies depending on the severity of the injury. On average, patients can expect a recovery period ranging from 8 to 12 weeks. However, each patient’s condition is unique, and we may recommend maintenance treatments to support long-term healing.

In addition to chiropractic care, we may also recommend appropriate imaging, which we provide in-house through X-rays. If necessary, we may refer patients for additional imaging, such as an MRI. Additionally, physical therapies may be recommended to enhance the healing process.
